Simon Says - Use An Embossing Folder

Hi Everyone...welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. Thank you for joining us for last week's challenge and we hope you can join us this week too because

and the theme for this week is...
Use An Embossing Folder
I created a love-themed card using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Retro Type BigZ die, Typewriter 3D Texture Fade, Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Hearts Mini Layering Stencil and Simple Stories Happy Hearts papers from Simon Says Season of Sentiments February Card Kit.

I trimmed one of the Simple Stories Happy Hearts paper that came in Simon Says February Card Kit to 5" square, coloured lightly around the edge with Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide ink using a mini round blending tool and fixed to a 5.1/2" square white card blank. I coloured a piece of Distress Watercolor card with Speckled Egg and Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide inks by smooshing the inks on to the craft mat on my Glass Media Mat and embossed using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Typewriter 3D Texture Fade, I accented the raised letters by gently brushing the ink pad over the surface, tore sections from the panel and fixed to the card using Distress Collage Medium.
I applied Distress Texture Paste through the Hearts Mini Layering Stencil from Set 6, sprinkled with Simon Says White Embossing Powder and heat set once the paste was dry.
I coloured scraps of Distress Watercolor card with Speckled Egg and Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide inks and die-cut using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Retro Type BigZ die.
I stamped the background from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Composition and Lined, inked with Ground Espresso Distress Ink, on to the left over Frayed Burlap scrap, trimmed and tucked into the slot on the typewriter.
I fixed the typewriter on the card with foam adhesive to create dimension and added a heart stencilled with Texture Paste and coloured with Abandoned Coral Distress Paint. I fussy cut the envelopes and postcards from the Simple Stories Happy Hearts paper and fixed in place with Distress Collage Medium.
 trimmed a section of the Simple Stories Happy Hearts paper, fixed to a scrap of white card with Distress Collage Medium and trimmed to create sentiments.
